you have spent the past four weeks away from work serving as a juror in a case deciding whether a pharmaceutical company should be held liable for a woman’s heart attack. She took the company’s painkiller, Oxxy-l.
The lengthy case has taken a toll on your professional career, and you have many unanswered questions as jury deliberations begin. Consider the answers to the following. Draft your answers in paragraph form.
- Where does your duty lie in serving on a jury?
- Are you protected against adverse employment action by your firm for missing work to serve on a jury?
- How do you reconcile the woman’s prior heart palpitations from years ago with her recent attack? Does your opinion change if her heart was already compromised before she began taking the painkiller Oxxy-1?
- Why didn’t the pharmaceutical company withdraw painkiller from the market at the first sign of a problem?
Be sure to draft your answers in paragraph form, discussing each question thoroughly. You will also need to reply substantively to a classmates’ posting. Remember that the questions may be asking you for your opinion, and not necessarily a specific answer from the text. Use your new knowledge to work it out!
As the vice president for sales of a company that manufactures and sells commercial carpet, you notice an alarming increase in the number of customers filing complaints with your company service representatives. Of particular importance is the number of complaints that involve claims in excess of $10,000.
Because these large dollar amounts can lead to lawsuits being filed, you want to investigate what is causing the increase in complaints and how your company can process these complaints to avoid burdensome litigation.
- What steps should you take to discover, in the most accurate and efficient manner, the reasons customers are filing complaints?
- What is the distinction between mediation and arbitration?
- Should your company’s sales contracts include a clause that requires the parties to attempt resolution of the dispute by mediation? By arbitration? By some other mechanisms?
- If your company’s sales contracts did include a dispute resolution (other than litigation) clause, when can the courts still be used?
